California burning

Few things can be predicted with regularity.

One of these things is the annual wildfire in the Malibu canyons, threatening among other things, Ken Starr's Pepperdine. For the record, it rains less than 10 days a year in LA and the fires are always fanned by strong winds.

News story here.

Favorite line of the story:
"Malibu, home of about 13,000 people, stretches along 27 miles of Pacific coastline. The area is home to celebrities including Barbara Streisand, Mel Gibson, Ted Danson, David Geffen and Pierce Brosnan.

Last January, a wildfire driven by Santa Ana wind destroyed the home of actress Suzanne Somers and three other multimillion-dollar residences.

The community also is home to about 25 rehabilitation facilities, including Promises Residential Treatment Center, whose guests have included Brittany Spears, Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen, Diana Ross and Matthew Perry."
